The F-16C and F-16D aircraft, which are the single- and two-place counterparts to the F-16A/B, incorporate the latest cockpit control and display technology.

We've got the the F-16A outfitted as an interceptor and the F-16C outfitted as a ground attack fighter. We don't bother with the B/D versions since they are so close to the A/C versions.
